Corrective Exercise

Corrective Exercise

The multidisciplinary team at South Coast Sports Medicine have the knowledge and skills to safely conduct postural assessments and design corrective exercise programs that will alleviate pain caused by common musculoskeletal imbalances. These imbalances often lead to discomfort, pain and injury and can exacerbate pre-existing conditions. The team have a thorough understanding of muscles, movement and biomechanics causing a specific dysfunction.

Corrective exercises are an important part of reducing aches and pains, as well as reaching fitness objectives. Generic gym programs or generic personal training does not usually take into account each individual’s unique combination of movement habits and postural imbalances.

The musculoskeletal system is under continual stress to dissipate impact through the body from gravity and ground reaction forces (Chasan, 2002). When the body is out of alignment, other areas must compensate to deal with the ever-present forces of nature. Compensation within the body can lead to overuse of muscles and soft-tissue structures causing pain and imbalances (American Council on Exercise, 2010).

Eventually, these compensation patterns may manifest in clients as problems such as Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, patellofemoral syndrome, runner’s knee, hip bursitis or dysplasia, spinal disc degeneration, rotator cuff tendonitis and/or tension headaches (Petty and Moore, 2001).

Our team is trained in assessing musculoskeletal imbalances and designing a corrective exercise program to get a body back into alignment, reducing the incidence of various symptoms. We recommend you seeing a Sports Doctor first for a diagnosis of your symptoms, and they will communicate closely with the other members of the team (physiotherapist, exercise physiologist, personal trainers) to develop a individual treatment plan for you.

As cycling in a very repetitive motion and not weight bearing, strength off the bike can improve performance on the bike.

Heavy squats are great for developing quad and hip strength required from endurance and sprints cycling efforts.

Single leg bridge with a glute focus is great at developing power through the hip, improving pelvis stability and increasing performance outcomes.

As cyclist can sit on the bike for hours at a time, it essential they have a strong core stabilizers to maintain the required position. The Pallof Press targets the core stabilizers, developing strength and endurance.

If you are a cyclist looking to take it to the next level, speak to one of our exercise physiologists about a structured strength training program.

Couldn’t of done it without Ingrid! Hardest most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life and I recommend it to anyone to do. I’m certainly not a overly fit person but with the right training and direction you can set and achieve goals like I did! Thanks so much to the team at SCSM.

Awesome Maxine. Congratulations.

Dedication to achieve the end goal!! Nailed it mate! 😍 Now for the next adventure 😃

The shoulder is an amazing joint that is able to reach in ANY direction. To allow this we sacrifice stability and often the shoulder can be a common area to injure

Dave took us through the complexities of the shoulder and how to diagnose and treat more effectively. We also discussed surgery vs exercise management

For many non-surgical management should be the first step.
